CALLIERES BONNEVUE, Louis Heetor, Chevalier de (deh-kal-leair'), governor of French Canada, born in Torigni, France, in 1639; died in Quebec, 26 May, 1703. He entered the army when quite young, and in 1664 obtained a captaincy in the regiment of Navarre. He went to Canada as a member of the Montreal company, and in 1684 was appointed governor of that city. In 1687 he led the advance of Denonville's army, which had invaded the Seneca country in western New York; but, considering it impossible to retain Canada without the possession of New York, he laid before his government a plan for its reduction, and went to France in 1689 to urge the project. His administration of the government of Montreal was so distinguished for judgment, capacity, and bravery, that in 1699 he was appointed governor-general of Canada. The ascendency acquired by Frontenac he maintained unimpaired, founded Detroit, secured the western tribes by negotiation, checked the Iroquois, and supported the friendly Abenaquis. He was succeeded in his office by Vaudreuil.
